Virat Kohli challenges India batsmen to "show intent" against South Africa quicks

India captain Virat Kohli wants his batsmen to "show intent" when they come up against South Africa's fast bowlers again, live on Sky Sports Cricket, in the second Test at Centurion on Saturday.

Vernon Philander led the way at Cape Town with a career-best 6-42 as South Africa's pace attack tore through India to secure a 72-run victory on day four of a thrilling first Test at Newlands.

No Indian top-order batsman made more than 28 in either innings in Cape Town with the only two scores above 30 were 93 by Hardik Pandya in the first innings and 37 by Ravichandran Ashwin in the second.

And with conditions at Centurion again likely to favour fast bowling, Kohli has backed his batsmen to come good with a new positive approach against the quicks.

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.
